Eric's sketchbook - From N00B to PRO (hopefully!)
Well, I've been checking out CA for quite some time now and I decided to finally sign up. My name is Eric-Anthony, 17 years of age and I'm here to become a better artist. I have just recently started painting digitally with a tablet and it seems very difficult but I guess thats O.K. I will be posting both traditional and digital sketches.
It's my goal to reach the potential of a professional artist, and I thought I'd share my daily sketches here, to receive some critiques that will boost up my improvement.
I hope to receive a lot of crits and advice as that is very important to me.
Thx in advance!

Welcome to CA. That's a fun painting. The only thing I can say of it with my limited experience is that everything seems to be made of the same material. His glasses and his skin, for instance, both appear to be made of the same mysterious fleshy substance. If that is what it looked like after the guy's tutorial cool, but that's just something I noticed.
It does have much character, thought, which is great.
Keep painting, drawing, or whatever you prefer.

i like your stuff my friend. though on that old man painting, it looks a little out of place to have such a textured background. i would save textures for a more dynamic piece, i could see that looking better without it. (just so the focus is more on your painting.)
and a crit for your most recent painting: there is going to be a lot of shadow inside her eye socket (between her right eye and nose). also, listen to a la bapsi.
and keevy, if your going to define the pupil, make it smaller. it looks like shes on LCD or something right now. though i didnt notice that until keevy pointed it out
keep it up
Art and kindness are my weapons of choice.

keevy39 ye i agree, it seems kinda big now that im looking at it.. i actually wanted it to be big but not "too" big of course, so i will def work on that.
avocado thx for the help, i will re-do the background and post a pic of it later.. i also worked on the girls face since my last post and i guess it looks better now. still have to find out how to paint her though ^^
-Work on the background of "old man" painting
-Edit the girl's eye
-Finding out how to paint hair
Here's how far i am atm, will continue working on it tomorrow..

The portrait is coming along...so if you take a break...come back to it.
You have a good sense of movement and line in those gestures. Throwing some detail in is good practice...but I'd keep at these too.

Well they're basically gesture sketches, and even if not, they're pretty detailed i think
Do a lot of flow and shape ones, and 1-2 really detailed ones if you want.
But as they are now, they're great! Nice curves.
Your portrait has a nice start too, but i think you're rushing it. Look at it more, find basic shapes, block in n then refine. Or whatever works for you, just don't rush it!
Do more, don't stop!!!

Jephyr X Thx for the comment! I am glad that you like my gestures.
BlackDelphin Thx. I haven't looked at the portrait for a while and just realised the mistakes I did.. Thx again for the help, I appreciate it very much!
Well, I haven't been online for a while because I've been very busy (school, work etc..). So I thought I'd update my sketchbook again with a little sketch I did a few days ago.
Here's the sketch (I got inspired by a video I saw and just painted my own version of the image):

I think beteen the antenna on the roof and the helicopter it really sells this one. I just posted today for the first time and I'm trying to get some input if you get the time.

Hey man! Nice gestures in the figure drawings. Try more observational drawings they really help accelerate your skills in the beginning. Draw whatever you can from life: your room, tabletop, anything! What you study helps to inform your future works so go go go!!!!
